As we told you earlier, Decision Desk HQ has called Florida for President Trump.
What made a difference was how well Trump performed with Latinos:

However, CNN’s Oliver Darcy shared something from FiveThirtyEight that claims Latinos were targeted by ads containing “misinformation.” What was that “misinformation”? That Joe Biden is linked to those with socialist desires:
"There was also a lot of Spanish-language disinformation targeting Latinos in Florida this year," @KaleighRogers points out. "Some of the key messages were trying to link Biden with socialism, which has a very strong impact with some communities…" https://t.co/Ul4OVvKpy5 pic.twitter.com/MDZFaJvH4B

It’s “misinformation” and “propaganda” to link Biden to socialist Democrats who support him? Not everybody agrees:
that’s…not disinformation. jesus already with the excuses?

Biden's policies and alliances with Sanders, AOC, Warren, etc. did most of the heavy lifting on linking him to socialism, champ.

An example of the overuse of the term "disinformation" to describe normal political hyperbole. Nobody says it's "disinformation" when Democrats call Trump a fascist, for example. https://t.co/hFneQGFkdN

Either minority voters were just tricked by disinformation OR
maybe having your party clearly move to the far-left in policy and promoting DSA figures like AOC/Sanders as representatives of the party played a role in convincing those voters the Dem Party isn't for them. https://t.co/Y2XtbMN8IC

Here comes the media disinformation campaign explaining how “racist” Trump won so many Hispanics.
Of course they quietly imply that Latinos are too stupid to make up their own minds.
They are not. https://t.co/HGBexsSnvx

this is repulsive and part of the reason some hispanics broke with democrats https://t.co/0rX3ockRGp

This is not disinformation at all. https://t.co/T2rK5IgtBu

It’s only “disinformation” for MSM types who have chosen to ignore reality.
